a work in progress...

I'm wondering if I don't have anything better to do than to mess with my template (and the font and of course the lovely colors) here.  Geez, I have a whole lot to do!  I have been in the midst of cleaning out this infamous back room for a...month ( I think.)  I have to explain- we are a 6 person family living in 2 bedrooms WITH a third bedroom as storage---anyone see a problem here?!

Needless to say, with much prayer and large trash bags and a yard sale-we are finally using the third bedroom!  Last night ( I tell you this because hopefully you'll feel better about yourself) I went through the dreaded paperwork and found utility bills from 2000!  Guess I don't need those anymore, right? ;)

I have been released from the pack rat mentality (praise the Lord!) but it truly is a process.  So, all of you precious organized, time oriented, efficient people-don't take these gift for granted...and extend grace to those who don't possess these gifts naturally...we're a work in progress!

Pictures to come....before and afters (brace yourselves!)

Some inspiring pictures over at my letters to emily (a sweet blog that blesses.)

Praying all is well...

Psalm 94:18-19 (New International Version)

 18 When I said, "My foot is slipping," 
       your love, O LORD, supported me.

 19 When anxiety was great within me, 
       your consolation brought joy to my soul.

When I sa



, "My foot is slipping," your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”

heart and treasure...

A precious visit to a "Walk through Bethlehem" at a local church a few years ago...

Do you ever have the desire to go completely natural?  I'm talking chickens and goats in the backyard, everything from scratch, organic, veggies from the garden you've sown, bread you've kneaded by hand, no TV, books and nature exploration, babies, homeschooling and SCRIPTURE ALL THROUGH THE DAY...a life committed wholly and completely to Him...

Well...this is the desire that has been lingering in my heart :)

Oh sweet friends, first, I think half of you are already living this way to a certain degree (maybe minus the goats!) but secondly, God's Word can (and should be) in every moment of the day no matter out in the rolling fields or crammed in the bustling city...

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. ~ Luke 12:34

For where your heart is, there your treasure will be also. ~ Matthew 6:21

Pondering these two verses, just a switch of two words...

He is good always, praying with you and His will for your life (and ours as well, to be sensitive to His voice and calling.)

Bless you!

Daily life ... to thrive

This journey of life-daily routines... sweet one, do you see the sun peeking through? The Lord is always present, perfect in His steadfas...
